Journal Through the Bible: Week 74 Wednesday

Jeremiah chapter 35

As previously noted, the chapters of Jeremiah are not ordered chronologically. This chapter is a flashback to the time of King Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah.

Does God issue any commands?

  • God told Jeremiah to take the Rechabites (the men of the family of Rechab) into the Temple and offer them wine to drink.
  • God told Jeremiah to go and tell the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem the question that God wanted them to answer.

Does God make any promises?

  • God would reward the family of Rechab for their obedience. They would never lack a man to stand before Him forever.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • Like the sons of Jonadab (and grandsons of Rechab), Jesus was the Son who obeyed every command of His Father. Like them, He also was a wanderer in Judah. His permanent home, a House with foundations, was in Heaven.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • We do not know who the descendants of Rechab were but since they were never to lack a man to stand before God forever we will surely meet them in eternity.
